Maine First Lady Ann LePage tells Boston talk show host Howie Carr about her surprise phone call from Bannon

Published

on

The First Lady of Maine was the guest Friday of Howie Carr on The Howie Carr Show in Boston, where she told Carr that Stephen K. Bannon wants her to run for Senate in 2018 against Sen. Angus S. King Jr. (I.-Maine).
“Two weeks ago my life was just real simple,” Ann LePage, the wife of  Maine’s Republican Gov. Paul R. LePage. The announced Republican candidate is state Sen. Eric Brakey, who represents a district in the southern part of the state.
Then, she got a surprising phone call from Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, on the other end asking her to run for Senate.
Bannon, who returned to Breitbart after a 12-month stint as the CEO of President Donald J. Trump’s campaign and then, upon the New York developer’s moving to the White House, the president’s chief strategist. Bannon now leads an effort to support the Trump agenda from the outside. The centerpiece of Bannon’s effort is his creating of a slate of nationalist-populist candidates to challenge in 2018 GOP primary candidates, who are aligned with Senate Majority Leader A. Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.).
Carr told LePage: “My producer and I talk to Breitbart people, they tell us they are in contact with you and if your husband doesn’t want to run, they want you to run for the Senate.
Maine’s first lady said there was one phone call.
“They called once. I was driving,” she said. “My daughter called me and told me not to panic, and said that Steve Bannon is going to be calling m–I had to pull over because I was dumbfounded.”
Did Bannon ask you to run? Carr asked her.
“He asked me if I would consider it,” she said.
“He told me to talk to the governor and that he wanted me to meet some people, and to go home and pray about it.  To be honest, I didn’t take it seriously,” she said. “Then I started getting phone calls.”
Enter Steve Robinson, the show’s executive producer, and a Maine native: “America needs Senator Ann LePage.”
Getting serious, the first lady said she husband’s traveling and work schedule have meant that the two have not yet had a real conversation about it.
Besides, she said she already has a job. “I like my waitressing gig.” said Ann.
Carr asked Page if her husband was running again. “If he isn’t interested in running, would you be interested? “said Carr.
“Don’t be coy,” he said.
“Ask him next week when he is on your show,” she said.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
